Defining rape in Missouri

When you hear the word "rape," you may immediately conjure up an image of a violent, forceful assault that leaves little room for interpretation as to the motive of an accused perpetrator. Yet while many may share the assumption, the law actually assigns a much broader definition to the crime. This is why many have come to us here at Frank, Juengel & Radefeld Attorneys at Law so surprised when they find themselves accused of this offense. You may currently be experiencing the same shock after similar accusations have surfaced from what you may have believed to be a completely consensual encounter. 

What is criminal conspiracy?

The word "conspiracy" is often convoluted with various meanings and contexts. That is why it is vital to understand what it means in terms of a crime instead of how it may relate to politics or a cover-up. A criminal conspiracy is often charged as a federal offense that can put someone behind bars for a significant period of time, depending on the underlying offense. 

When is a search warrant invalid in Missouri?

Despite popular belief, a police officer cannot just request a search warrant and have the department issue one to him or her that same day. Rather, for an officer or any law enforcement agent to obtain a warrant in Missouri, he or she must have a valid reason for doing so and, moreover, follow proper protocol. The judge who issues the warrant must also adhere to certain etiquette, otherwise he or she runs the risk of a higher authority declaring the search warrant invalid.
